Shoulda slept in

iPhone sleep timer
At best, waking up at 5am, 6.65 hours sleep. So the actual, 6.35 hours, is what it is.

Shoulda slept in.

Awoke at 4:40am with an idea swimming around in my head.

If i fell back to sleep for 20 more minutes until the 5:00am wakeup, almost guaranteed to lose the idea.

While 20 minutes seems insignificant, i was already logging less than seven hours.

Lots going on this week.

Big Disney Customer Service Keynote tomorrow at the local Ritz Carlton.

And mid-week a planning session with a Big Four Professional Services firm.

Oh, and then there’s this genius idea that woke me up.

Focused on sleep because it was the easiest

Many Glacier Hotel
Yes (again), it’s that breathtaking.

 

Focused on sleep because it was the easiest.

Almost every night, i was able to get eight hours of sleep.

In the big picture, without regular exercise, and indulging in way too much sugar, winning 10 out of 12 nights with 8 hours somehow felt good.

Compromise is the only option sometimes

Apple watch running app
Inching my way back, about 1/4 mile each week.

 

Abdominal incline bench
This is harder than it looks, and i love it.

 

So the indefinite vacation from running lasted about two months, roughly until school let out around June 1. Since then, i became our son’s running partner. All Summer long we ran with the Windermere Runner’s Club two mornings a week at the high school. The other three days, we ran from home: not much running to speak of, and this is why i got back into running – it was easy running and our son needed the support, guidance, and encouragement.

Dear Son

It happens sometimes…roll with it

Thunderstorm near Disney World
Last night at 730pm.

 

It happens sometimes…roll with it looks good on paper.

Radar showed no rain at our High School, just three miles down the road.

And last night, a Tuesday, was a scheduled Track workout.

Our campus was dry and untouched by rain.

But we had to wait, as the clouds shifted direction.

Ultimately, after 15 minutes, we made the call to cancel.

It happens sometimes.

Roll with it.

It’s called real life.

It ain’t called theoretical life.

Theoretically, we should take good care of our health for our entire lifetime.

Two miles is better than nothing

Best Disney Leadership Conference Speakers
“What is your strength?”

 

Two miles is better than nothing. It surely is. So yesterday at 5:30am, i took what i could get.

What we lack in distance, we make up by feeding our resolve to never quit.

Note: Speakers are generally the first to arrive and the last to leave. Long days (and early morning start times) are not conducive to exercise.
